Whoooaaa... did this thread take a turn!
Something I (apparently) find amusing, if not productive.
So...if I remember correctly...the point being...don't be an arse in bitchin' about your problem.
Folks here really and truly want to help you out. Right?
Yes, exactly. The moral to the story, I believe, is that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. In other words, if you post a problem with the caveat that "if no one will help me I'm gonna go back to Distro XYZ or to the Windoze", the chances that someone will want to help you will be close to none or nil.
Just my take, from recent experience.
It's frustrating when things don't work. Especially when things normally work so well.
People get spoiled, then they get mad because something doesn't work, they get lost and maybe mess up some other stuff, then they get desperate and then they post.
They don't bother with telling us what they did or what their problem is, they just post their rant about how something don't work and how they think it should.
These people can't follow instructions or answer simple questions about their problem.
They are too focused on the fact that their system no longer works
They have become "Zombies".
You can't reason with a zombie, you can't talk sense into a zombie, they will not cooperate with any dialogue.
All you can do is shoot them square in the head.
I have seen our mods do it time and time again.
They don't want to do it,, but it has to be done.
